About the Author

John Sparks is a retired Information Technology executive and consultant. In contrast to his passion for technology and gadgets, he has always enjoyed history.

After retiring he became enthused about his family history. At first, he wished that he could just order a DVD documentary that would explain how his earliest Sparks family ancestors migrated from Africa and later generations somehow got to St. Louis, Missouri. He could then sit back and enjoy the story in high definition video and surround sound. But, alas he is just a common man and no movie producers had approached him.

Then, he recalled how his mother encouraged him to turn his wishes into realities by quoting the Scottish proverb, "If wishes were horses then beggars would ride." He realized that making the movie might be a bit much, but he could write the book.
